Controversial Italian striker Mario Balotelli has scored a screamer for Marseille against Saint-Étienne in Ligue 1 tonight and celebrated in typically unique style.

Marseille took the lead through Balotelli's stylishly acrobatic overhead kick after a Florian Thauvin corner, and Thauvin doubled Marseille's advantage in this crucial Ligue 1 clash.

Marseille won the match 2-0 and have leapfrogged Saint-Étienne into fourth position on the table and Balotelli's side is now just five points behind Lyon in third.
